The Prodigy's Liam Howlett has promised their new album will be an antidote to "DJ b******s" and "YouTube s**t"

The Prodigy have promised their new album will be an antidote to "DJ b******s".

The 'Out of Space' hitmakers will release their as-yet untitled sixth LP in the coming months and band member Liam Howlett has proclaimed the record is full of "pure violent energy".

He told Q magazine: "Dance music across all types has become formula-based.

"It's 'Here's your drum fill, here's your build.' All that DJ b******s and tutorials on YouTube s**t. This album is totally organic. Pure violent energy."

While the album doesn't have a title yet, Liam confirmed to the publication that songs on the record include 'Beyond The Death Ray', 'Nasty Nasty', 'Get Your Fight On', 'Wall Of Death' and 'Rottweiler'.

As previously announced, the band's collaboration with Sleaford Mods, 'Ibiza', will also feature on the record.

Earlier this year, Liam promised the album will be more "violent-sounding" than the group's previous offerings.

He said: "It's more violent-sounding; it feels wilder. It's not so much old-school. It's neither guitar-based not synth-based; it's kind of a mixture.

"It doesn't feel so radio-friendly to me; it feels like its got a lot of edge."

The album is expected to be released later this year.
